Pierre Lacan's "Légitime Défense" depicts how a common man protects his family ?
18 November 2013 | by (Paris,France) – See all my reviews

Films with violence do not shock audiences unless they have something which can induce viewers to leave their seats as if they have been completely dominated by fear. A similar violent scene involving a small baby being thrown into water has been featured in 'final balance' /'Légitime Défense' which can be labeled a "responsible thriller".The welfare and well being of a family is at the heart of this film's narrative thread. Belgian actor Olivier Gourmet gives new dimensions to his villainous role. Although French actor Jean Paul Rouve gives a very restrained performance, he does not miss any opportunity to portray his part of a dedicated family man. He conveys that he would do anything in order to protect his father, mother and child from dangers. Lastly, a mention must also be made of French actor Claude Brasseur who shines in a small but important role. Watching him perform nicely, one learns that he has aged for sure but continues to carry considerable charm.
